Chinese New Year

Parkhill doesn’t need fireworks for their Chinese New Year to go off with a bang! Each year group did a different art activity linked with China.

Y3 made fantastic firework pictures with oil pastels “We used pastels to colour the card in. Then we used black cover the top. Then we used toothpicks to scratch the fireworks out.”Amreen 3

Y4 were using ink to write their names using Chinese characters. “I found out how to draw your name in Chinese. We drew it with pencil first and then added black ink. “ Avneet 4N

Y5 made their own Chinese drums from paper plates which were decorated with rats! “It was fun making the Chinese New Year drums because we were learning about a different culture from the world.”
